What the hell, when kittens attack!

So yesterday as part of my job I had to lug a washing machine up to a 2nd story apartment. I woke up a little sore this morning so I headed off to the hot tub.

Almost as soon as I got back my two sweet kitties jumped me. One got on my head and started biting me and the other one wrapped itself around my ankles. Neither one of them had ever done anything like this before.

Apparently chlorine drives them crazy. Who knew?

They waited until you were at your most vulnerable and pounced. Calculated. Deliberate. Feline.

They must be made an example of. For humankind.

I learned that about 2 years ago. I was prepping my hallway for painting by bleach washing the walls of a decade of abuse including crayon. Our cat Dot went absolutely bonkers, worse than catnip.

What the Hell? When Kittens Attack

Sounds like the HellKittens from George R. R. Martin's Tuf Voyaging

“Of course,” said my grandfather, stepping from the Time Machine and pulling a gun from his belt, “There’s no paradox if I shoot you!”

Thanks guys. Yes they are adorable if I do say so myself.

Backstory: I was working at a house in the backyard when the owner told me there were two kittens in the hedges. The mother had gotten ran over and the other babies had died. He was moving out of town the next day and couldn't take them. It was 107 degrees.

I'm not really a cat person (or wasn't, ha ha) but I couldn't bare to think of them suffering. Now, months later after bottle feeding and butt wiping here they are.

I know a little bit of kitty pics go along way so I promise this is the last one. Here they are in their normal loving mood: https://s3.amazonaws.com/gs-geo-imag...79d3bfd890.jpg

When my Tina was a wee kitten, I trained her to do the hug 'n' bite without the biting. She nuzzles her forehead into my arm really hard instead. It's adorable.
